I spoke to the man pictured in the attached image on the corner of beach drive and 2nd ave N in downtown st. pete today. I tried to get more information about the VETSS organization since I had never heard of it and he wouldn't provide any details and became short with me in his responses. I searched the veterans effort to stop suicides foundation online and found no results. I also searched the irs database of charities and found no information about VETSS. The gentleman is at this location often. If his charity is a fake, people should know about it.
Standing water is a constant issue at the corner of 17th Ave NE and Beach Drive NE. For the past few days water has been draining from a construction site. Since there is nowhere for it to drain, it has pooled and is stagnant for several blocks. Mold (?) is now growing on the bricks and the deep and ever-growing puddle of water is 1/2 way into the street.
58th St N ditches junction with Miles Creek at 33rd Ave N. Miles Creek flows westbound going under 66th St N curving northward into Joe's Creek just west of 66th St at 40th Ave N. Joe's Creek empties into Cross Bayou. Miles Creek banks are gradually sliding into creek and there is much foliage and trees holding it together. Slow movement of water flow contributes to neighborhood flooding. The City should consider converting Miles Creek to a concrete viaduct to carry 4-6 times the water and also to serve as more water holding potential. See sample photo.
I reported this last year this year and since AER now Camden pier district apartments were constructed this post always gets close out saying it's a duplicate I want to know if it is a duplicate what is being done with it because this is going on for two years now.
Our street has been flooded for a month now. Absolutely NOTHING has been done although I received a message saying it was dealt with and closed out!! I am going to call the health department as well as we have had standing water every day.
I am on the corner of 2600 9TH AVE N and 26TH Street N next to the high school football field. 26TH ST N is one way because of the school traffic. My driveway backs out onto 26TH St N. Everyday numerous cars turn off of 9TH AVE N and go the wrong way on 26TH ST N. I have almost been hit backing out of my driveway on numerous occasions not expecting anyone coming the wrong way. I think it is because you can not see the one way arrows painted on the street because they are very worn and the one-way signs are not easily seen when turning off 9th Ave N. The asphalt street is very cracked and broken up. And, one other thing, some years ago a utility contractor must have trenched the road at the foot of my driveway and now the storm water and mud collects at the foot of my driveway because the road was apparently not repaired correctly after the utility work. Maybe resurfacing the short section of 26TH ST N from the school to 9TH AVE would correct the drainage problem and new one-way indicators may help with the dangerous one-way traffic.
Can you please provide some information about the Oak St NE paving project- (off Gandy Blvd) it has been ongoing for 2 1/2 months and the road is nearly impossible - and very progress is made to reconstruct this 1/8 of mile- I invite you to drive your car down this road. Please advise the few hundred of us that HAVE TO use this road-there is no other option to get onto Gandy Blvd. PLEASE!! 10980 Oak St NE, St. Petersburg, FL 33716
So just behind the city pool, there is an area that constantly has a sewage smell. It's just as the sidewalk corners and it does seem to be an area that garbage builds up. Whenever I walk along the bay, this area has a horrable smells of raw sewage. Certainly something can be done to improve the cleanliness and smell of the area.
